Texas Graduate Liberal Studies Symposium graphicThe Graduate Liberal Studies Programs of Southern Methodist University and Rice University invite you to participate in the annual Texas Graduate Liberal Studies Symposium on Saturday, July 29, 2023 in Dallas, TX.

The symposium provides an opportunity for students and alumni from Texas graduate liberal studies programs to share their experiences and studies and continue to explore timeless and timely human questions within the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Students and alumni are encouraged to submit research papers and creative works to be considered for presentations during the symposium.

This one-day symposium will open with breakfast on Saturday morning followed by student and alumni presentations. A keynote speaker will deliver a lecture during lunch. Whether you are presenting a paper or attending to listen to presentations, we hope you will join us to share ideas, network, and socialize with other graduate liberal studies colleagues.

More information about registration and how to submit an abstract to present at this symposium will follow soon. In the meantime, mark your calendars and make plans to join us at SMU!
